1972 240Z rolling chassis for sale

Recommended Posts


I'm new here but not to Datsuns.....first 510 was in 1996 and I'm in the middle of another 510 project so this 240Z needs to go. I suppose many of you follow Jun's awesome 510 wagon and 620 thread, we graduated together and he can vouch for me ;) I had this on Craigslist but it would be nice if a Datsun guy who knows/wants to get his hands dirty takes it on.



1972 240Z rolling chassis in Torrance So Cal for sale. Very straight body shell with only the normal minimal rot on the seat floor area. The roof panel is wavy and needs normal prep and paint but I think it's a good starting point for a mean Z. Full Auto Power roll cage and the previous owner did a good job dying the original door cards and headliner black. Dash looks OK but NO seats included. The car needs to be trailered away anyway. Un cracked Classic Datsun Motorsports fiberglass replica 432Z over-fenders and rear deck spoiler. BRE style front spoiler with brake ducks also installed and all parts sanded primed and painted. Rolling on cheap 15x8 XXR wheels but I was hoping to keep the Falken tires if you don't need them. If that's a deal breaker we can negotiate a little more $.



Front suspension totally rebuilt. Brand new Design Products camber plates, fresh Tokiko 5-way Illuminas, Ground Control coil-overs, bead blasted and shortened strut housings professionally tig welded to MR2 length, hubs stripped and painted with new wheel bearings, races and OEM wheel studs. Bumpsteer spacers and new ball joints. New tie-rod ends and steering rack bushings. Pesky rubber steering shaft coupler replaced by urethane. Rear suspension has Ground Control coil-overs as well but is otherwise stock. Sits right (low) and rides well because of all the new suspension travel!



Included in the car is a good radiator, Nissan 5-speed and a rebuildable N42 L28 2.8 liter with N42 cylinder head. NO carburetors or fuel pump or header included but Webbers are easy to get or swap in an RB26!! This L-Series was a very quick combination though but either a piston ring let go or a valve guide is leaking so one spark plug is getting fouled by oil. SO I'm selling it as a rolling shell of course, bring a trailer! L28 long block DOES have a new aftermarket harmonic balancer from MSA, ARP head studs(!), new manifold studs, good water pump and even a higher volume (Nismo?) oil pump. Has great oil PSI and turns over smooth. Just rebuild and find carbs!



It's a shame to see it go but I've decided to put all my efforts into my Datsun 510 project. Please ask questions but the price is firm @ $3,500. PM me. Pictures soon when I figure out how to do it!
